Our next update was a short but informative non-food related update from Robin (ciera321).



Robin said, "Off the topic of food for a minute...but the new entrance/ticket devices are a HUGE improvement over the old ones that you insert your tickets into. With these wonderful devices, you hold your "Key to the Kingdom" card up to the Mickey head, place you finger in the pad on the right and when it turns green, you're in. There are generally 2 sets per line.
This is GREAT!"

Feb. 15 - Feb. 23 - 2 or 3 more reporters needed

Feb. 24 - Feb. 28 - 1 more reporter needed


But of course, my motto is...I can always squeeze in one more! So if your trip falls during the first 10 days of February, but you would like to do live updates, then please let me know.
Barb, I know I signed up for 2/10-16 but do to financial reasons my brother canceled his vacation. So I have moved our vacation to 2/23-2/28. If you still have room i would be more than happy to still do report. Thanks Nicki

Then we received our final update from Joyce (Jersette).


She, Katy, and David had lunch yesterday at...




Rainforest Cafe






PASTALAYA
Shrimp, sautéed chicken, bell peppers, onions, tomatoes and Andouille sausage tossed in a hot and spicy Cajun sauce and served over linguini.
Only for the truly adventurous!




Joyce said, "David had their version of Jambalaya...the server said it was really spicy, but David thought it just had a nice heat. He liked this."







RUMBLE in the JUNGLE TURKEY WRAP
Shaved turkey breast, Roma tomatoes, crisp bacon and Romaine lettuce tossed with Caesar dressing,
wrapped in a flour tortilla and served with chips and coleslaw.



"Katy had the HUGE turkey wrap. She enjoyed it, but could only finish half."






CHICKEN FRIED CHICKEN
Breaded chicken breast fried golden brown and served with red skinned garlic mashed potatoes and country gravy.



"This was my chicken. It was fine, but I am just not a fan of Rainforest...it's all about the upsell. (And our server literally said each of our entrees was her favorite!!! ) Disney restaurants seem more about the patron, if that makes any sense."



"We had a fantastic time and we all agreed staying onsite with a dining plan was so much fun!! Thanks for letting me post my often crummy pics, Barb. I enjoyed being a part of the live report community!"

I've been reading all the reviews and looking at all the pictures, whenever a new one is added.

It has me so excited to start my live reporting. I'm driving my family nuts because I'm trying out the different settings on my phone for taking pictures in different lighting, so every meal we have I'm taking pictures of it.

This is an amazing thread and I'm thrilled I'm going to be part of it.

Robin then sent another update from their last dinner tonight at...


California Grill





Robin said, "We always finish up our Disney vacations at the California Grill.
Alex and I both had this..."






Oak-fired Filet of Beef with Buttered Purple Stokes Purée, and Citrus-glazed Carrots


"Alex and I both had the filet. This is what Alex gets every time, so of course he loved it.
I did also, but it was a little overcooked, which is not normal for CG."








Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Goat Cheese Polenta, Roasted Mushrooms, Zinfandel Glaze, and Crispy Sage


"Tim had the pork tenderloin. He said (and I agree) that it was full of flavor and wonderful."







Valrhona Chocolate Cake - Warm Chocolate Cake with Molten Center


Robin said, "Desserts were just fabulous! I had the Valrhona Chocolate Cake with vanilla ice cream, instead of the flavor it was supposed to come with. Nothing goes better than vanilla in my book.
Perfection - absolutely the best dessert I've ever had, and I've had many!!!"








Bananas and Caramel - Crispy Baked Phyllo Squares layered with Banana, Mascarpone Mousse, and Caramelized Banana


"Tim chose the Bananas and Caramel and really enjoyed it."




"Now Alex, who is not a big dessert eater, decided on the Strawberry Lemonade Cake.
His plate was totally clean when he was finished. He said this was fantastic."





Strawberry Lemonade Cake

I have one more update to post this morning from yesterday. This one received last night from Lauren (Giselle22) and is her first of her trip.


She and her DMom arrived at Disney World yesterday and had their first Disney meal at...




Earl of Sandwich






Holiday Sandwich



Lauren said, "We knew we wanted dessert later, so we split a holiday sandwich. I was very excited to be able to try it as it was only supposed to be on the menu until Jan 6th! The sandwich has turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce,
spiced mayo (we asked for just a little of this), and gravy. It was delicious! We both loved it and decided we are going to cram all our Thanksgiving leftovers into sandwiches next year."








Macaroni Salad


"We also shared some macaroni salad, which we also both enjoyed.
It wasn't too heavy on the mayo and had a sort of tangy flavor, like from pickle juice."






"After some window-shopping we went to Ghirardelli for dessert!
We shared a Mint Bliss sundae and loved every delicious bite!
(That's mom in the picture)."





Mint Bliss Sundae
One scoop of mint chocolate chip ice cream, one scoop of chocolate ice cream, dark chocolate hot fudge sauce, whipped cream and a square of Mint Bliss Intense Dark chocolate.

Argh I'm so mad! We were in Epcot yesterday, and went right past France, but since I got several things from there the other day I decided not to stop- we never even went back to notice they were open

She arrived at Disney World yesterday and sent her first update from her breakfast this morning at...




Kona Cafe





Big Kahuna - French toast, Pancakes topped with Pineapple sauce and Macadamia Nut Butter, scrambled eggs, home fried potatoes, ham, bacon, and sausage






The Samoan - Poached eggs with Hollandaise served over smoked pulled pork hash







100% Kona Coffee French Press Pot




butiflfeet said, "We had breakfast this morning at Kona Cafe. DH and I had the Big Kahuna and my sister had the Samoan.
We also shared 2 press pots of Kona coffee. It was delicious but we couldn't finish it all!"
